ACCESS Open Minds Chatham-Kent was initially funded through a national research grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Graham Boeckh Foundation. We are also one of ten Youth Wellness Hubs Ontario sites that is funded through the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. Our site serves a small, urban centre and the surrounding rural areas. Chatham-Kent has a population of approximately 108,000 and it includes two First Nations communities. The youth hub brings together existing community partners who are committed to working in a new collaborative and innovative way, offering a “one-stop shop” for young people aged 11-25 and their families looking for mental health support.
